Abstract [sv]

Studien syftar till att granska fyra svenska morgon- och -kvällstidningars skildring av krisen på Krim: vad konflikten handlar om, hur de olika parterna avbildas, vilka attribut som knyts till parterna och vilka relationer som beskrivs, för att kunna jämföra tidningarnas bild av krisen och se hur hur tidningsrapporteringen sker i kris och krig.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to analyze how four newspapers in Sweden have portrayed the Crimean-Crisis, in order to compare the results and draw conclusions about how media portray war.  A quality discourse analysis. There is a clash between two images: the image of the events in Ukraine being portrayed as a people’s revolution to overthrow a corrupt and Russianloyal regime, and the image of an armed uprising consisting of facists and ultranationalists forming a non-legitimate government who is threatening the Russian language and the ethnic Russian inhabitants in Ukraine. A majority of the newspapers polarizes the conflict into an us and them, with Putin as the great villain and the Western powers as the good side. There is a distinction in writing between the morning newspapers and the tabloid newspapers, where the second one is more dramatic and more frequently applies attributes. A consequence of this could be an increased motivation for conflict, rather than for peace.
